The ninth GAP Days will take place in Halle (Saale) in the Institute of Computer Science of the Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg, which next to the Institute of Mathematics. Please see below, and the program page, for the specific details about which rooms are available for our use on which days.

The main base for the GAP Days will be rooms 5.09 and 5.10, on the fifth floor of Von-Seckendorff-Platz 1.

Throughout the GAP Days, we will also have access to seminar rooms 1.02 and 1.03, on the first floor. These rooms will be useful for those who wish to have meetings or discussions that are not relevant to the whole group.

Getting around Halle

Halle has an extensive tram network, which is the best way for visitors to get around Halle, especially those staying at the TRYP hotel (see below). Von-Seckendorff-Platz 1 is a two minute walk away from the tram stop Straßburger Weg. Information about times and fares can be accessed via the easy.GO webapp, or via the native easy.GO apps for Android and iOS.


We recommend that you stay at the TRYP by Wyndham Halle.

At check-in, you will been given a complimentary ticket which gives you unlimited travel on Halle’s public transport for the duration of your visit. The closest tram stop to the TRYP hotel is Zentrum Neustadt, which can be reached from the main railway station in 20 minutes by line 9. Note that, since you do not receive your free ticket until check-in, you will need to purchase single ticket (2.30 Euro) for this journey. To travel from Zentrum Neustadt to Straßburger Weg for the GAP Days, it is necessary to change trams at Rennbahnkreuz.

The organisers had negotiated a special offer for participants of GAP Days Spring 2019, but this offer has now expired. However, there are still rooms available at normal rates.


Halle is a city of around 240,000 people, so there is a reasonably large variety of restaurants and bars in the city. Kleine Ulrichstraße has a particularly high concentration of decent restaurants and bars, so it would be a good place to start if you want to see what you fancy. Please bring cash to restaurants and bars; there is likely only a small chance that foreign cards will be accepted.
